Messmate Park Bushcare Group News & Next Meeting

We recently spent a very satisfying morning tackling Cats Claw creeper near Tinana Creek.  It was also very frustrating as we do try to monitor and maintain this weed.  Tingid Bug is alive and well and doing some damage to this plant.

Newly planted trees are surviving – the sturdier eucalypts are sprouting higher than the tree guards . The beautiful  Hyacinth orchid is now blooming – photo is attached.

Dates to remember for our next upcoming Bushcare meetings:

Saturday 19th December 2020 – 8.30am

Monday 11th January 2021 – 8.30am

Please bring hat, water, sunscreen, Aeroguard,  Surdy shoes and favourite tools
